Oh yes, it is absolutely as if she stopped them from medical help if they wanted it. Have you ever been to South Asia? These were people who had no educated choice, and she kept them from getting proper medical care.
Yes, I have been to South Asia, although that is absolutely irrelevant in this discussion.
And no, she in no way prevented them from going somewhere else if they preferred. She did not deceive them or lie to them. Almost certainly, it was a case of either staying at home with no care at all, or laying on a bed with attendants who hydrated them and gave them food and attention. Their lack of education/choice had nothing to do with Mother Teresa.
The point is, her organization had millions in the bank from wealthy donors that she could have spent to improve the horrifying conditions in her clinic but didn't. She had more than enough money, for example, to buy pain pills for terminal cancer patients begging her for relief, but she didn't do so because she believed their suffering was virtuous.
I am curious, though. What is your investment in Mother Teresa?
